We are Americans, and why not live up to the one great motto that our forefathers took upon themselves, that noth- ing is impossible, when they endeavored to find a place where they might be free? There were many dangers and trials to face but they did not know such a thing as failure. Even when the Indians became very warlike, they did not give up but set about with more determination than ever, by protecting themselves, to conquer them and give them to understand that they were masters. R 'lt -I I' ll! There were many hardships to overcome but they did not give up for a cause they knew was just. It took many years of hard, fierce struggling to conquer, but conquer they did. ' 'X' lk it R -it There is a constant development in every line in this age. Do we heara great inventor or discoverer say, "I just can't do that?" Nol He says, " I will" and accom- plishes whatever he undertakes although it requires years of hardships. A In the life of Helen Keller we may seelmany good things that can be woven into our lives. No one who knew her in her girlhood days as stubborn and unmanageable, ever thought that she would one day be classed so high in her education. She was taken by Miss Sullivan and it was only through her patience that Hellen Keller was brought to the front. If she who was denied of most of her senses could overcome such obstacles, why need we who are blest with all ours not take renewed courage from this exemplary life, and strive to overcome what few things that lie in our pathway? ' xc 4: wk wk :le . Many deep chasms have been placed by nature and they have been declared impassible, but by ingenious minds they have been spanned by some of the finest pieces of en- gineering that has ever been constructed. While we are passing through life, there comes a time to each of us when we come to some kind of a chasm. As we stand at the brink and gaze into what seems to us fathomless space, we almost give up in despair for it seems impossible to span it, but as we muse, a feeling of resoluteness comes over us and we see that the only way to reach the other side is by put- ting forth every eifort to make a solid structure of that part of our life, for We build the ladder by which we rise From the lowly earth to the vaulted skies, And we mount to its summit round by round. Our high school gives us just the foundation needed to make a substantial success in life. We have come to the end of our school life and are now at the parting of the ways. We should start in with more determination than ever, that we may ever live true to this motto we have chosen: " Impossible, Un-American." Charge-" What Shall the End Be." By Ralph W. Jordan. W e are not able to prophecy or foretell the mystery of lifeg not even with the assistance of all the penetrating in- sight exhibited in modern times are we able to attain to any clearness regarding our futures. And, since there are no sign-boards on life's highway with success or failure marked thereon, it only goes to prove that it is a matter resting entirely upon our shoulders and it behooves us as to whether the goal is success or failure. Q 'll 'K' il- if We, the members of the class of nineteen hundred and nine, have been intrusted with this education by our pa- rents and teachers. Mistakes may mark us back, men may misjudge us, the half-way spirit be tempting, the fight be tiring, but let us not, in the midst of any of these condi- tions, betray the trust and confidence that is and will be placed in us. ' if it Ik Ill Ik Let us take our various stations and hold to them or else step out and make way for the man who cang let us not settle down on the steps leading to the hall of achieve- ment 3 let us not pause in the path of progress 5 let us not be satisfied with contentment for contentment is rust and rust is certain decay, let us not be satisfied with being known as a " good sort of fellow," for the industries of the twentieth century are already crowded with these second-rate men. Emerson said, "Hitch your wagon to a star," but a governor of one of our Western states hath rightly said,- " Better put your shoulder to the wheel and push." We must push, for this is the word on the door leading to the hall of accomplishment. The word PULL is on the other side, but this is only for the fellow who is going back, who has been pulled out of his course. We wish to thank the members of the Board of Educa- tion for the wonderful improvements and changes, changes for the better, that they have so faithfully planned and so successfully carried out in the past four years in our high school course, a work deserving the highest praise. We wish to thank our teachers, for whom we have the -highest regards, for their patient and faithful efforts to im- part their knowledge and experience to us, oftimes under trying and adverse conditions. If we only accomplish all that is before us, we can say: " Father, I have glorified thee on earth having accomplish- ed the work which thou hast given me to do. 77 X . ,l,,4..g.....n.,,M,,Y,n L, Ad y 3
